WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-2) today announced his cosponsorship of H.Con.Res. 115, Recognizing the 64th anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel. He issued the following statement.

Congressman Amodei:

"In a world full of uncertainty and adversaries who would do America harm, it's important we take time to recognize not only the 64th anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel, but also the enduring bond between our two nations. Israel stands as a shining example that democracy can indeed flourish in the Middle East. But that democracy requires vigilance, on their part and ours.

"In my office hangs a framed quote by John. F. Kennedy, which I think is particularly appropriate on this day:

 

                'Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.'"

Amodei statement on Department of Labor farm chores rule

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-2) issued the following statement regarding the Department of Labor's proposed rule for children working on family farms, which would prohibit them from the “storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials." The new regulations would also reject safety training and certification taught by such American institutions as 4-H and Future Farmers of America in order to replace it with a 90-hour federal government training course.

Congressman Amodei:

"I'm sure the Nevada members of 4-H and FFA are very impressed with President Obama's understanding of farming and ranching in our state. I'm astounded at the tone deafness of the administration in attempting to brush aside a collective 200 years of agricultural experience and tradition."

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-2) issued the following statement regarding today's legislative hearing for H.R. 4039, the Yerington Land Conveyance and Sustainable Development Act.

Congressman Amodei:

"I'm pleased with the positive bipartisan reception the Yerington bill received today and commend Mayor George Dini, as well as Tim Dyhr from Nevada Copper, for testifying on the importance of this plan to the economy of Northern Nevada.

"The hearing proved the Dini name is still magic, as members from both sides of the aisle praised Speaker Emeritus of the Nevada Assembly Joe Dini.

"I'm encouraged that the official from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) articulated no substantive objections and I want to thank the BLM Carson City District Office for their contributions to this matter. I also appreciate the consideration of our neighbors in Arizona and California -- Ranking Member Grijalva and Rep. Garamendi.

"We will continue to work with Chairmen Bishop and Hastings to pass the bill out of the Natural Resources Committee. And I plan to visit with Reps. Berkley and Heck, as well as Senator Heller this week to push for final passage in the House and Senate."
